Transportation info sessions wrap up this weekend

How can The City best keep Calgarians on the move? Calgarians have another opportunity to share their thoughts as The City’s transportation information sessions wrap up this weekend.
Senior staff with The City’s Transportation department will be at Northland Village Mall October 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to share information on major transportation-related projects and chat about priorities for infrastructure spending over the next ten years.  We also want to hear from Calgarians on what transportation changes or improvements you feel would most benefit you, your family and your daily commute.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve spoken with close to 500 Calgarians and collected hundreds of written comments during sessions at Bankers’ Hall, Chinook Centre, Sunridge Mall and Southcentre. About 120 people have used our interactive program to share how they would prioritize capital funding over the next decade.

We’ve talked with Calgarians about projects and services across the city—from the Airport Tunnel and future LRT connections to the airport, to road construction and maintenance. We’ve heard from people who want more on-street bike lanes and those who want separate cycling facilities. We’ve also heard from transit riders about specific bus routes, ticket prices, parking fees and safety ideas.

We’ve updated websites where possible to include answers to questions you have asked. We’re also compiling every comment from our feedback boards and are working our way through them to see where changes and improvements can be made.

Be sure to stop by Northland Village Mall this Saturday to share your ideas on Transportation in Calgary. Your suggestions and comments help us as we work to keep Calgarians on the move.
